MT500 – Massage Therapy 500 Hour Program
Our MT500 hours Program is required for therapists who want to apply for the State Certification as a Massage Therapist through the California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC). This certification allows massage therapists to practice in any city in California. Certification for Massage Therapist will require 500 hours of education and taking and passing the MBLEx test.
To be able to apply for State Certification and earn a certificate for the MT500 Program, you will need to take our MT300 Hour Swedish Program AND 200 additional hours of electives. When you have completed the MT300 Program and 200 elective hours, and passed any and all applicable tests you may apply to the CAMTC for State Certification as a Massage Therapist. Once you apply you should request that we send in your Transcripts which will include a breakdown of our MT300 Program and any electives you have taken with us.
